- High-grade mineralization restricted to narrow zones
- Massive Sulfide zones are very narrow, maximum thickness 1.5m (Hole EL-17-03)
- Discovery Zone Massive Sulfides - appears to be a small pod, adjacent holes didn't intersect it.
We get a table with hole locations and a breakdown of the assays!
|Massive sulfide intervals highlight in red
I've highlighted the massive sulfide intervals (** in the press release table). However, in the Nov 20th PR, we are told that:
In the table, this isn't labelled as a massive sulfide zone, is this just a typo? I'm splitting hairs, but we often see in other deposits we often see S.H.I.T. intervals related to veinlets/pods of mineralization.
We are still missing a decent plan map, but with the information provided I've brought the data into 3D (get the viewer file* from here - link), and due to my prodigious use of a ruler, I've also added the EL-17-14 discovery zone as as well.

|1 square = 50m
There are a lot of holes in a small area, and the Discovery Zone is very close to the narrow Ni-Cu intercepts in holes EL-17-02 and 04.
|EL-17-14 sulfide zone is Black
|EL-17-14 sulfide zone in black
Again we see that the Discovery sulfide body is surrounded by drill-holes. Does this mean that it is very small?
The Discovery zone is only 32m from hole EL-17-04 and 27m from EL-17-02. However, it isn't completely close off, there is potential to expand it to the north and east, unlike the other zones where adjacent holes hit virtually nothing.
I'll be updating the model with more data
